Trustopia selects Acuant for Identity Verification


Acuant, a leading global provider of identity verification solutions, announced that Trustopia is using its award-winning Trusted Identity Platform to provide seamless onboarding and authentication in its people screening ecosystem.

 Trustopia provides secure end-to-end intelligent people screening for enterprise customers around the world. With Acuant, Trustopia customers are able to quickly and accurately verify identities on any channel.

Employee screening presents yet another challenge in identity proofing. Beyond employers seeking to truly know who they are hiring, valid screening should verify critical information such as right to work, criminal records, credit checks and driver status checks — all in an ethical and regulatory compliant manner. With regulations that differ by industry and country, if screening is not properly executed employers may risk reputation damage and significant penalties.

“We are delighted to be partnering with Acuant. Their best-in-class technology combined with Trustopia’s brilliantly simple platform and industry expertise is a powerful combination that will disrupt and change the background checking and screening market,” said Paul Moore, Chief Operating Officer at Trustopia.

Acuant’s platform allows businesses to onboard users and verify identities on premise and remotely (online, mobile, app). Trustopia has engaged Acuant IDscan, AssureID and FaceID to provide seamless multi-factor authentication on any channel. In one seamless workflow, a user simply captures their government-issued identity document (which is instantly authenticated via 50+ forensic document-specific tests), then takes a selfie with a liveness test to prevent fraud. The selfie image is compared to the image on their ID for accurate verification. The entire verification process takes less than 20 seconds for a user. Acuant technology protects personally identifiable information (PII) providing encryption to and from the cloud to ensure data privacy.

Trustopia’s platform offers the same flexibility and ease that Acuant is known for — enterprises are able to gather and authenticate the information they need in order to streamline processes and make decisions. Both platforms are powered by AI with machine learning for fast, accurate and scalable solutions that enable full automation of workflows. With this partnership, companies can rest assured their employee onboarding is safe and secure at a time when many critical business operations are increasingly remote.

“Through our partnership with Trustopia we are helping businesses make better, faster, safer screening decisions,” said Yossi Zekri, President and CEO of Acuant. “Trustopia is innovating the people screening space and bringing together the best technologies to effortlessly automate and manage all screening requirements in one simple interface. We are extremely pleased to help execute this vision.”
